Republican American: Candidate Horn perfectly suited to serve in 64th

Letter to the Editor:

Voting this election year is critical to restore truth, respect and confidence in the state and federal government. In Connecticut’s Northwest Corner, we are fortunate to have excellent candidates with strong credentials to support for Congress, statewide offices and the state legislature – 30th Senate and 64th House districts. Turnout will be important; so will be votes (i.e. darken the ovals) across the full ballot.

Democrat Maria Horn has a resume tailor-made for the 64th. A Salisbury resident, wife, parent, lawyer and federal prosecutor, school and community activist, Maria is an empathetic, effective and enthusiastic communicator. She will not only contribute to legislative debate in Hartford, but share her insights with constituents. She is a keen listener and advocate for individual interests and requests.

Democrat David Lawson, running for the 30th Senate District seat, is married, the father of two grown children and a career high school history teacher. He “knows the territory,” living in New Milford, serving as longtime chairman of the Board of Education there, and earlier having spent many summers working at Camp Ponemah in Kent.

Both candidates are personally and professionally familiar with local concerns: affordable health care; quality public and private education; environmental protection; and the financial resources and budget constraints of rural communities.

These candidates deserve your support. Every voter counts and every vote will be counted.
